My dad had a hard life that wasn't really aware of till I was older. He worked hard to try and provide a better life for him and his family and succeeded and I will always love and appreciate everything he has done for us. On June 11 2022 my father passed from the disease ALS, a disease that with no cure and one that he never deserved. Its hard to think of him gone, he did everything for us and I'll miss him greatly. Love you dad.
